Last year two old friends of mine, Matt and Jesse, went into business together after completing their PhDs at the MIT Media Lab. As you might have guessed from the post title their work focuses on various aspects of robotics (I’m fortunate to have very smart friends). IF Robots’ (soon-to-be-renovated) website can be found here.
They needed portraits for an upcoming magazine article featuring their company so we spent an entertaining evening at their office working through a few different setups. I’m generally a spontaneous/intuitive photographer so it was fun to slow down and spend time shaping the lighting and composition to suit the subjects(s).
A few additional images from the shoot can be found after the jump, including a rough but amusing light-painted image.
